For those of you that love what we are doing, here's where you can have a monetary contribution.

Thanks in advance!
SimRacingHub

========================================================================

Here's our list of expenses for 2017:

Dedicated Server:

As some of you know, I run the server from my home connection but was looking to have a dedicated one setup for official events, to keep costs down like we did in 2015. The server costs the following:

$0.404 per hour

We have 20 races for this season, each event consists of two official days which are Tuesday for Practice and Thursday for Quali and the Race. I also need about 30 minutes to setup the server for an event. Assuming I turn on the server for the first Official Practice to test the system from 9:20pm till 11:30pm after the mini-races are over, and then I turn on the server for every Quali and Race from 9:20pm till 11:45pm on Thursdays. If we calculate the time each event requires, we end up with:

2.1667 hours (first Practice) + [2.4167 hours (each Race) * 20 events] + [0.5 hours (setup time) * 20 events] = 60.5007 hours for the entire season.

Therefore, 60.5007 hours * $0.404 per hour = $24.44 per year.

Not bad for a 1 Gbps up/down server!

TeamSpeak:

Our TeamSpeak server has a 30 user capacity and is running the entire year. The cost for it is $5.57 per month.

Therefore, $5.57 * 12 months = $66.84 per year.

Website:

Here's where it gets expensive.

Domain renewal (simracinghub.com) is $14.95 per year
Domain protection (simracinghub.com) is $24.00 per year
Hosting (simracinghub.com) is $323.40 per year

In total, the website costs $362.35 per year.

If we add Server + TeamSpeak + Website it ends up being $453.63 per year.

I'm not including how much I pay for tools such as Photoshop and Premier, which I use for our website and our videos. That alone is $50 per month. And of course, the precious time that I put into the league is also not being added to the equation.

There you go guys, now you know what I'm facing and what's necessary to keep the league running :)

Thanks John Williamson !

Yeah, I know our website is pretty expensive, but it's very reliable and fast :)

I might look into alternatives next year, but moving an entire website is a bit of a pain, to be honest...

It cost HOW much to host the web site !

You would love to pay what I pay. Maybe because we've been with the same place for a long time.

Gents, given the performance issues we have seen with our NRT server, I've decided to investigate different routes. At the moment, we are covered until the 27th of August with NRT.

Today I went to a local At&t office and bought their 300 Mbps download Internet plan (not sure yet how much is their upload but I figure it should be more than enough for us to host a server). The plan costs $60 a month, with a one time fee of $100 for the modem. There is a 1-year contract involved too. The service will be provided at my father's house because in the community I live, Comcast has a monopoly and no other provider can come in. This At&t service will be used exclusively for our server, I won't even connect a router to it (although I might, for security reasons).

Having said all this, there's a trial period of 2 weeks, if I can't get the server to show up in the server list, or we see connection drops (which I doubt), then we will stick with it and not renew with NRT servers.

I know you guys were generous starting this season and we covered all the expenses up until now. For this second half of the season, I anticipate the following:

- $100 modem fee
- $60 * 4 months = $240 to allow us to have a server up all the way throughout 2017
- $24 on November 19 for the website domain protection
- $14.95 on November 30 for the website domain name
- $323.40 on January 27 for the website hosting

Total: $702.35

As always, your donations are very welcomed :)

So I had to dump the Amazon AWS server we used for the first official practice in favor of an NRT server which costs $50/month.

Right now we have sufficient money for 6 months of service. We'll go through another round of donations later this year to cover for the rest. Once again, thank you all for your donations ;)
